Sonatas 1 & 2, both for Cello & Piano - Brahms , players Du Pre & Barenboim - C 063-00 393

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This pair of Sonatas, both for cello and piano, differ somewhat. For starters, No.1 has three movements, while No.2 has four. There are also major differences in expression ... No.1, composed between 1862-65, has very obvious poetic and elegiac touches. As an example, in the first movement, Allegro non troppo, Johannes especially favours the higher registers of the cello instrument. The Allegro quasi Menuetto, by contrast, is graceful and rhythmic, while the final movement is a triple fugue of masterful contrapuntal device. Some of this finale, is reminiscent of Bach's "Art of the Fugue".
Side One : Sonata for Cello & Piano No.1 in E minor Op.38, by Brahms :-
1) I Allegro non troppo 2) II Allegretto quasi Menuetto 3) III Allegro

The second Sonata was composed in 1866, although, for many fans of Brahm's music, it has the distinct feel of one of his much-earlier compositions. This is because of the Sonata's passionate fervour and impetuosity ... however, it must also be said, that these features are controlled by the presence of rich and mature experience.

The first movement has an especially vigorous theme, expressed via the furious piano part, which strikes the listener with its passion and power. Again, there are striking contrasts between the first and second movements ... in the case of this Sonata, the Adagio affetuoso is full of flowering melodiousness. The Finale, a short plain Allegro molto, echoes the deep and exciting tensions of the preceding movements, rather than bringing them to a climax.
Side Two : Sonata for Cello & Piano No.2 in F major Op.99, by Brahms :-
1) I Allegro Vivace 2) II Adagio affetuoso 3) III Allegro passionato 4) IV Allegro molto
